QJ Motor offers a model range with a lot of diversity. But the QJ Motor name does not inspire much confidence, and the Chinese company is yet to prove itself in the Indian market. As is characteristic of a new brand, after sales support is inadequate and sales have been slow to take off. QJ Motor aims to set that right using an aggressive new pricing strategy. Whether it is enough to change the company's fortunes remains to be seen.
